dicod - a DICT daemon


dicod [-fEsiTth] [-I DIR] [-x LEVEL-SPEC] [--config=FILE] [--foreground] [--stderr] [--syslog] [--preprocessor=PROG] [--no-preprocessor] [--include-dir=DIR] [--single-process] [--inetd] [--transcript] [--no-transcript] [--debug=LEVEL-SPEC] [--source-info] [--trace-grammar] [--trace-lex] [--config-help] [--lint] [--help] [--usage] [--version]


dicod is an implementation of DICT server (RFC 2229). It is fully modular: the daemon itself (dicod) provides only the server functionality, but it knows nothing about database formats. Actual searches are performed by functions supplied in loadable modules. A single module can serve one or more databases.
